The left side is canvas and the right is watercolour paper. I found this beautiful illustration by Orson Lowell and it still had the tissue with the page. It had these extra spines in the back cover to advertise his other titles.
To post a journal page every day makes me realize that I don't work on just one page at a time. I like to work on doing a series of backgrounds with the same materials as you can do a lot quickly and spontaneously. I do my best stuff when I don't know what I am going to next, I just let it unfold. So for Misty's Great idea of a page a day I may post on how a group of pages are going so far. And I really want to try a self portrait. I have never done one. It's just never entered my mind. Hmmmm? should be interesting. So hang on and enjoy the ride. Yeehaw!
